Amanda Bynes’s Mom: No Mental Illness, Blame It All On Marijuana!

  • Amanda Bynes’s mother issued a statement to US Weekly denying that her daughter suffers from mental illness and instead, blames all of Amanda’s problems on pot: “Amanda has no mental illness whatsoever. She has never been diagnosed as schizophrenic or bipolar. She is very sorry for all the hurtful tweets, statements and actions that occurred while she was under the influence of marijuana.” The family lawyer also told US Weekly that Bynes is on “zero medication.” I don’t know what the real story is, obviously, but “just pot” doesn’t make people attempt to start fires, throw bongs out of windows, and run around town in crazy wigs while tweeting nonsense. Whatever Amanda’s issue is, I hope it is being treated somehow. [US Weekly] Keep reading »

Colorado Teen Jumps To His Death After Eating Marijuana Cookie

Colorado Teen Jumps To His Death After Eating Marijuana Cookie

For the first time since Colorado legalized weed for recreational use, a coroner has listed “marijuana intoxication” as a contributor to a death. Wyoming student Levy Thamba was in Denver on spring break with three friends when he jumped to his death from a Holiday Inn balcony after eating a marijuana cookie, reports the Denver Post. His friends told investigators he “exhibited hostile behavior” after eating the cookie, and though initial attempts to calm him down seemed to work, he ended up leaping from the balcony, USA Today reports. Read more on Newser…

7 Of The Worst Choices Ever Made While High

7 Of The Worst Choices Ever Made While High

Someone once told me drugs are bad. I think it was a man dressed like a dog, or a cartoon rabbit or something. I’ve taken that lesson to heart and only do molly after promising this will be the last time. Every time.

While we’ve all heard hilarious tales of bath salts zombies and heroin-addled buggerists, those are lame and predictable and somewhat depressing drug hijinks. Don’t people do hilariously misguided things when they’re high anymore? Aren’t there any stories that could serve as awesome subplots in a carefree ’80s sex comedy? Yes!

Last week, some baby genius with a bit of time on their hands slowed down a video of American astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson talking so that he sounded, well, baked. The host of “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” enjoyed the video so much (you can watch it after the jump) that he showed it to a full audience at a speaking engagement in Toronto this weekend. Coincidentally, last night’s episode of “Cosmos” (my current reason for living) saw Tyson revealing that some of science’s most renowned thinkers enjoyed marijuana, which I read as an enthusiastic recommendation that viewers smoke more weed. Whatever you say, Neil, you’re the boss. Check out the original “Neil deGrasse Tyson stoned” video after the jump! [Gawker] Keep reading »

Colorado Girl Scouts Put The Kibosh On Selling Cookies Outside Of Pot Shops

girl scout cookies

Last week, clever California Girl Scout made bank after she set up shop outside of a marijuana dispensary in San Francisco. The enterprising 13-year-old sold 117 boxes in two hours, both to neighbors and customers of the cannabis club. Tragically, Girl Scouts in Colorado won’t have a similar circumstance to exploit — even though their state recently legalized marijuana — because they want kiddies to stay away from the pot clubs. In a statement on their Facebook page, the Girl Scouts of Colorado warned scouts that cookie sales are not permitted outside “adult establishments,” which includes pot dispensaries. Strip clubs, bars, liquor stores and casinos as also verboten. “We recognize these are legitimate businesses, but we don’t feel they are an appropriate place for girls to be selling cookies in Colorado,” they wrote. [I wonder if they know that there is apparently a strain of marijuana named after their delectable treats? -- Amelia] Keep reading »

Girl Scout Nearly Doubles Her Cookie Sales By Setting Up Shop Outside A Cannabis Club

Thirteen-year-old Girl Scout Danielle Lei had been doing pretty well selling Thin Mints and Samoas outside grocery stores around San Francisco, but she had a feeling she could do better with a more targeted marketing strategy. So she did what any intrepid young businesswoman would do: she set up a cookie table on the sidewalk in front of The Green Cross, a cannabis club. As you might have guessed, Lei’s strategy paid off, big time. She sold 117 boxes in two hours. “It’s no secret that cannabis is an appetite stimulant, so it’s not shocking that a lot of our patients came and purchased cannabis, and then saw the cookies and purchased them,” Holli Bert, a spokesperson for The Green Cross, told NBC News. “But it wasn’t just patients; staff members and neighbors also bought the cookies. I personally bought five boxes. It turned out to be a big success.” The clinic has invited Lei back to sell cookies this weekend, where she’s sure to shatter sales records. Never underestimate the power of the munchies. [NBC]

Colorado Replaces “420″ Mile Marker With “419.99″ To Stop Stoner Thefts

Colorado Replaces "420" Mile Marker With "419.99" To Stop Stoner Thefts

And people say stoners are lazy. After marijuana fans in Colorado — which recently legalized the drug — repeatedly kept stealing the 420 mile marker on Interstate 70, the Department of Transportation gave up and put up a 419.99 marker instead. “420,” of course,” is a number associated with pot-smoking culture, and Colorado is one of the few states with a highway long enough to need a 420 marker, so it’s not like there’s tons of these bad boys to rip off. ”Obviously people steal these signs,” said CDOT spokesperson Amy Ford. “In the past, if a sign was stolen too much, we wouldn’t replace it. This is sort of an innovative way for us to keep the sign there.” [Denver Post]

Watch Whoopi Goldberg Roll A Sad Looking Joint On “Watch What Happens Live”

Watch Whoopi Goldberg Roll A Sad Looking Joint On "Watch What Happens Live"
Roll One Up!

On last night’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” during the segment in which Andy Cohen’s celeb guest demonstrates their special talent, Whoopi Goldberg showed Andy and actress Zoe Saldana how to roll a joint. You know, of oregano. Or tobacco. Pick your poison! Anyway, Whoopi was probably feeling the pressure of a time limit because her doobie broke midway through. Rolling a tight, fat joint means taking your time, man. A producer signaling to go to commercial would totally harsh my mellow too.

Science: Marijuana Use Might Be Causing Man Boobs

A scene from "Pineapple Express"

Oh man, I better call up all my high school boyfriends and tell them the news before it’s too late. Actually, on second thought, I’ll let them suss this one out for themselves. According to experts (yeah, you heard me, experts!!), regular marijuana use could be to blame for a hormonal imbalance leading to excessive breast tissue in men. Keep reading »
